The blasphemy and criticism of Islam by BJP leaders, who portrayed the Prophet as a child molester, is spreading like wildfire in many parts of India and the Arab world. BJP leaders’ obscene remarks regarding the Prophet’s marriage to Ayesha Beavis are controversial.
The only thing that proves that Islamic law is outdated is that there is no set age for marriage in Islam. Muslims are allowed to follow what is generally practiced in each country according to the social conditions in each country.
It is obligatory or desirable (Sunnah) for Muslims to copy the teachings of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about life.
But other life affairs are not like that. There we have the freedom to adapt to our socio-economic circumstances (Joyce). .
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married a 65-year-old widow named Sauda. Therefore, the Prophet did not teach Muslims to tie a 65-year-old woman. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married nine-year-old Aisha, so there is no specific law in the religion that other Muslims should marry a 9-year-old like that. It’s only a matter of time before you can get married.
The age of marriage is different in different communities of the world. Until about 50 100 years ago, the average age of marriage in many societies around the world was 10 years. A 1998 survey by the UNICEF International Center for Research on Women in India found that 47% of marriages were child marriages. That is, until just 20 years ago, about half of all marriages in India were child marriages. A 2005 study by the United Nations found that child marriage in India had dropped by 30 percent. According to the 2001 Indian Census, 1.4 million girls were married between the ages of 10 and 14. The number of married people between the ages of 15 and 18 was 4.63 million.
